Psychotropic Medication Quality Improvement Collaboration

The Center for Health Care Strategies (CHCS) led a three-year project focused on creating best practice guidelines for psychotropic medications for children in foster care. The states involved in this collaborative were Illinois, New Jersey, New York, Oregon, Vermont, and Rhode Island. Each state formed a cross-agency team that worked together to create and execute guidelines for the use and monitoring of psychotropic medication in foster care. The information gathered by each state’s cross-agency team was distributed to other states to help them make protocols regarding the use of psychotropic medications.
